Default AF Tastes Burnt

I'm smoking AF from a phunnel bowl. It smokes great for about the first 45 minutes. Then a burnt taste starts to emerge. When I take the tin foil off though, there is still probably 75% moist, flavorful shisha left.

The heat is managed carefully, so it's not getting harsh. It's like, once the top layer is done, it produces a burnt flavor that overpowers the unused stuff beneath it. I don't have this problem with any other brand. Tangiers will literally smoke for five or six hours before losing flavor. And SB and Nakhla, even Pharaohs will take another set of coals or two before the flavor dissipates. But AF only seems to have one set of coals in it.

Is there something I could do differently to get more flavor out of this?
